The 411 on Anthony Vaccarello

After months of speculating and rumours flying from one editor to another, French luxury house Saint Laurent has finally confirmed Anthony Vaccarello as its newest creative director. Here, BAZAAR lists down the need-to-know facts about the Italian designer.


He’s Belgian-Italian.

Born in Brussels, the 36-year-old designer attended the prestigious L’ecole de La Cambre school—the same alma mater as designers Olivier Theyskens and Charles Anastase.


Donatella Versace is a fan.

And he held the title of creative director at Versus Versace for the last three years.


He spent two years designing furs at Fendi.

Under the tutelage of the one and only Karl Lagerfeld, no less.


Actress-model Lou Doillon is his best friend.

Although he was shy to introduce himself when they first met.


He won an award at the Hyères Festival.

For his all-leather collection based on Hungarian-Italian pornstar, Cicciolina.



His first major American magazine cover was with Harper’s BAZAAR.

Featuring a camera-shy Gwyneth Paltrow and legs that go on for miles.
